This romantic story revolves around a mistaken delivery by the Dabbawalas (the famous, presumably flawless lunchbox service) of Mumbai, which leads to a relationship between Saajan, a lonely widower close to retirement, and Ila, an unhappy housewife, as they start exchanging notes through the daily lunchbox. The Lunchbox (104 min., India, 2014) is directed by Ritesh Batra.
